Sunny Deol is a Bollywood actor who needs no introduction. He entertained us with some really iconic films such ‘Ghayal’, ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’, ‘Ziddi’ and many more. His more recent films such as ‘Ghayal 2’ and ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2’ were also a huge success at the box office, proving that the 61-year-old actor still has a huge fan following.
Sunny Deol is one of the most sought-after action heroes of the Hindi film industry, but as per a report by Amarujala, he does not share a good equation with a few top actors of his generation. Read more to know who these actors are!
1. Ajay Devgn
Sunny Deol’s uncordiality for Ajay Devgn started in 2002 when the latter was shooting for ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’. Sunny wanted his brother Bobby Deol to be given a role in the film but Ajay Devgn was clearly against the idea. As a result, Sunny Deol apparently started disliking Ajay Devgn.
2. Aamir Khan
Aamir Khan’s ‘Lagaan’ and Sunny Deol’s ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’ were the two top films of 2001. Coincidentally, the two films had also released on the same day. Reportedly, Sunny had requested Aamir to shift the release of his film but the latter did not agree and hence the relations between them turned bitter.
3. Anil Kapoor
Sunny Deol and Anil Kapoor have shared the screen in ‘Joshilaay’ and ‘Ram-Avtar’. It is believed that during the shooting of ‘Ram Avtar’, the crew witnessed a terrible scuffle between both the actors and since then, the two share a bad relationship.
4. Shah Rukh Khan
Touted as the ‘King of Romance’, Shah Rukh played the bad guy in ‘Darr’ which had Juhi Chawla and Sunny Deol in the main lead. During the shooting of the film, Sunny Deol complained to director Yash Chopra that despite being in the main lead, he is being given less importance than Shah Rukh Khan! And since then, Sunny has hard feelings for Shah Rukh.
In an interview with DNA in March 2016, Sunny Deol had said that he does not have issues with any actor and is willing to work with all the actors in the industry. He also said that what happened in ‘Darr’ was a mistake that would not be repeated. The actor also dared other actors of Bollywood to work with him but also admitted that he knows that none of them would work with him!
It has been years since and we haven’t come across any reports of Sunny Deol sharing screen with any other leading actors of the industry except his brother Bobby Deol and father Dharmendra. But it would be interesting to see whether it happens sometime in future! Don’t you think so? Share your views with us in the comments!
